As an example, metropolis landmarks can be within the high-density space, whereas safety infrastructure can be positioned within the medium density space, enabling easy entry to any part.
Town can be related by street infrastructure within the underground layer. All items and companies can be transported underground through autonomous mobility to every area’s automated logistics hub, the place autonomous robots will make the ultimate supply.
Residents will journey between cities by the superior air mobility (AAM). The AAM autos will land and take off from a collection of the Hub 2.0 towers, which mix residential and workplace areas with AAM ports on the prime of the constructing.
